If you’re one of the many folks who enjoy streaming their browser tabs to Chromecast in Google Chrome for desktop, then you’l want to get your hands on the latest upgrade to Chrome Beta for Android. As of version 34, Google has added a hidden option that allows you to enable Chromecast streaming.
You can use it to stream anything you’re currently doing in any tab, such as watching a YouTube video or a movie on HBO Go. And although it’s hidden, the feature is quite easy to enable. Take heed to these simple and quick instructions:
- Open Chrome Beta for Android.
- Type chrome://flags/#enable-cast in the Omnibar and press enter.
- Enable the “Enable Cast” feature.
- Relaunch Chrome Beta.
You should see a screen like the one in the shot to the right. Of course, it’s worth noting that this feature is considered experimental, so you shouldn’t expect things to work 100% right just yet.
We imagine you wouldn’t be on beta if you didn’t expect that, though, so it probably doesn’t even need to be said. If you’re all set then be sure to head to the Google Play Store and grab the latest upgrade as soon as possible.
